Making Art in Communities (MAC) – closing 25 Jan

Up to £1500 is available for any one organisation in each financial year.

Making Art in Communities Funding Programme (MAC) is to support constituted community groups/organisations based in the Council area to participate in, develop or promote the Arts.

A ‘community–based arts project’ is where a professional artist works with a community to facilitate a creative process that enables participants to express their needs, aspirations, inspirations, identity or sense of place that results in a meaningful impact on their lives.

MAC will provide funding in a range of artistic categories to raise community awareness about issues, including health promotion, environment and sustainability, urban renewal, rural revitalisation, cultural planning, community strengthening, social inclusion and cultural diversity.
